October 19, 2012
Pinch-hitting for ED Carmen Reyes-Zubiaga, DED Matt Lee Jr., met the 5-man team for this world event on October 29-November 2, 2012 in Incheon, Korea. He helped find the team’s name – “MAKE THE RIGHT REAL – PHILIPPINES, adopting the new Decade’s tagline, with the theme: I.T.’s More Fun in the Philippines”. The young delegates will compete in e-LIFE, e-Tools and e-Sports categories.
The 5 delegates are: 1) Ms. Jennifer Garcia, Team Coordinator from NCDA, will also present a country paper on “Accessible ICT in the Philippines”, 2) Ezekiel “EJ” Erpelo, MCCID Institute of Technology, 3) Gerson Peralta, Philippine National School for the Blind (PNSB) , Jabby Vesagas (Independent Living Learning Centre (ILLC), and Jabby’s Mother/Personal Assistant Mrs. Connie Vesagas.

The meeting no doubt, set the whole team on a high gear, with NCDA’s full support. Big thanks goes to the Department of Foreign Affairs’’ staff Ms. Mila Cruz, who tirelessly makes the express lanes for PWD passport applicants real, including these young delegates.
